    Finally he is arrested. Now I hope that justice can go forward whichever way it may swing.

    Aaah going to jail for a blatantly racist crime of killing a defenseless black kid. Jail is going to be fun. I imagine "Karma's a bitch" will be the summary of his time there.

    And see how the calm, rational approach to this case has worked out?

    Why do you consider this act to be "blatantly racist?" It is my understanding that a hell of a lot of information about this case is unknown to the public at this time.

    Listen to Zimmerman's call to police dispatch. He knew it was a kid, and was told not to follow the kid by the dispatcher, but Zimmerman followed the kid anyways becuase he thought he was "acting real suspicious" and had his "hand in his waiste", he had skittles and ice tea and was talking to his girlfriend.

    right before the point in the call when the dispatcher tells him not to follow him you can hear him get out of his car and start going after him and he says something under his breath which a lot of people think it was a racial slur. He says "f*cking" then you cant hear the next word, some people think he says punk though.....

    And from what I've read some media agencies even lied about it for various reasons, and some pictures presented in initial cases weren't even of the right people.

    Some media outlets have tried quite hard to make this case appear to be racially motivated, because the OJ trial was a ratings bonanza for them. The truth is incidental.

    The call he made to dispatch has nothing to do with any media agencies. Listen to it yourself and decide if he uses a racial slur or not.

    WOW I love how people want to justify the killing by finding offensive photos of the deceased.

    Anyway, there's no proof to show that this was racially charged. Furthermore, the tape were George Zimmerman is supposedly saying "Coon" is not viable. The only thing we know for sure is that George Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin. The racial implications are just speculation as this point.

    Shouldn't you be glad he's facing a trial? You know, innocent until proven guilty?

    Innocent of what? He killed Trayvon Martin. He's going to Jail. We're just waiting to find out if it's manslaughter or murder.

    It seems in the face of sensationalism, people forget you have to respect others' rights.

    "No, I demand you follow every letter of my rights. What? Yours? Forget about it."


    There is a court system for a reason. You wouldn't want certain individuals claiming you're a dirty software pirate and labeling you so before a fair trial, would you? Trials separate rumors from facts. We think he shot him maliciously, while testimony and the police report seem to indicate that as the truth. Now the hard part is seeing if a hate crime charge can be tacked on. I'll let the evidence talk, not the preachy Reddit/Facebook nitwits.

    That was all from the right, they tried to portray Trayvon as a thug the photo you are talking about came from a neo-Nazi website.

    This whole ordeal has been foisted on the public by professional race hustlers and perpetuated by a media that covers up the thousands of black on black killings because it doesn't fit their narrative. They'll actually call a hispanic white to further their agenda. This whole thing is a construct to get blacks to he polls for obama because black unemployment is 18%. Anyway it's good to see that good old fashion race baiting is alive and well
